Typography Dissertation. Advice needed

Hi there, i am currently in my third year at university studying graphic design and have recently started my dissertation.

I have decided on an area of which i would like to focus on however the subject area has been covered before and continues to be discussed in the design industry of late.

I would like to base my dissertation on print and pixel and where the two are heading. However i am really struggling on pin pointing one aspect within such a large subject (help?). For me print publishing will always appeal to me, the aesthetic value of a well designed publication is what print is all about. Its why I love what i do.

Now i have discussed and brainstormed the subject with my tutor. But if anyone can provide me with further advice then it would be greatly appreciated.

Speculating about on where printed and digital type are going has little value as a dissertation because it’s just speculation. Find a way to turn this dissertation into the development of something concrete instead.

Screen resolution. Non pixel displays. / Resurgent letterpress (polymer plates). Print as luxury.

No advice really, but writing a dissertation sounds like fun.
